The First Seahorse Farm in the World

The Ocean Rider Success

The successful Ocean Rider seahorse farm model has changed the way people think of the aquarium hobby convincing critics that farm raised fish make better pets because they are healthier, more colorful, easier to feed because they eat frozen shrimp instead of wild live shrimp, and live longer , while saving our reefs from the unnecessary pressure from collectors that take wild fish off the reefs. Interviews with their collaborators, critics, and fans shed light on the complexity of the “farm-raised” versus “wild-caught” issue so prevalent today in Hawaii and the entire world.
